Always a good meal. The bread is homemade and fresh. Best of all are the specials. Though the specials vary, they nearly always have a seafood choice--which is always excellent.

Food was good and service was okay, but I was charged for a drink that I never received. It was my fault for not closely reviewing the bill before leaving the restaurant and I was already home by the time I noticed it, so I wasn't going back to dispute it...It would've cost more in time and gas than the cost of the drink. Just be sure to review your bill before you provide payment.

A bit disappointed this time. Ordered Pollo Picatta, there were no capers and there wasn't much flavor. Usually this place is spot on. Have been going here for over a year. Hopefully it was just an off night.

We had a great table by the fireplace on a cold rainy afternoon which was great! Our server was excellent and very attentive. The food was delicious! Our friend was celebrating her birthday and our server brought her a dessert complete with a candle! We had a wonderful experience!

The evening was perfect. My husband has a hearing problem so i asked to be at a table where he would be against a wall . The hostess was very understanding and gave us a quiet table. The food was delicious, cooked to perfection

While the food and service were quite good, the noise level was extremely unpleasant. When we mentioned it, the waiter said up by the bar was quieter. When leaving, we mentioned it to the hostess, and she said the bar could be noisy, too, depended on the night. We (party of 2) were seated in a corner adjacent to two groups of 12 women each - they should have placed us elsewhere, it ruined a birthday celebration for us.

Usually a lovely spot, on our most recent visit a large party captured all the staff’s attention and drowned out the rest of the diners with their raucous fun. Food was a bit off from the usual high standards. Red wine reduction seafood risotto is a big miss. Hoping for better luck on our next visit. We know A can do better.

My husband and I got a terrible table right by the bar. We could not hear each other, and the waiter could barely get to us for our order. Besides that issue the food and service was good. I recommend requesting not to be at the tables by the bar.

Good service -- that's about all I can say. Food was so so -- not great, especially for the price. Wine was grossly overpriced. We probably won't go back. There are many better options for Italian in Richmond.

Azzuro has long been a favorite of mine—however, on Thursday, the experience was over-the-top wonderful! Our server, Evan, was wonderful—he knew the menu inside and out and made some wonderful recommendations! The restaurant was packed—and food was being brought all around—with some of the happiest diners I’ve ever seen—all gasping at the meals placed before them! And our food was spot-on perfect—and of compete freshness and delectable taste! And if specific mention was Austin—he was in charge of our drinks/tea/water—he was phenomenal—and, was by far, THE most personable server we’ve ever seen! Please give Evan and Austin our sincere thanks—for making our evening perfect! We look most forward to coming back soon!

Food is delicious and many choices including gluten free! The service is so good and so polite.we have had Evan twice and will ask for him again. They will accommodate the way you want your food done by adding or leaving off to customize your order. No rushing ,just a very relaxed atmosphere. Amazing desserts!😊 Flo G.

Delightful experience! Celebrated an 86th birthday with pizza (her choice!), a nice Sangiovese, and a gigantic, complementary serving of tiramisu, which Azzurro provided with a candle! Delicious food, cozy atmosphere, friendly and attentive service, and they seated us exactly where we requested. Parking also easy. Definitely recommend!

The food was not up to par for the price. My friend's scallop linguine was underdone. My wife's crazy risotto had very little crab. Busboy dropped a table knive on my wife's back and hardly apologized. Good calamari.
